Good Monday Morning, Everyone....  the weekend went fast!!  Attended my grandson's 4yr old birthday party on Saturday.  Oh to have that much energy again!!!  They had a wonderful time at an indoor 'jumpy' facility... two hours of all that activity and I was ready for my nice quiet front porch swing, listening to my tinkling fountain!! lol... but it was a joy spending time with the grandchildren...
The days are getting shorter and the leaves getting brighter... the cool nights are great for sleeping with the windows open and hearing the crickets chirp.. but its harder to slip out from under those warm covers in the morning!
Here is another great poem for you....

"Crispy air and azure skies,
High above, a white cloud flies,
Bright as newly fallen snow.
Oh the joy to those who know October!

Colors bright on bush and tree.
Over the weedy swamp, we see
A veil of purple and brown and gold.
Thy beauty words have never told. October!

Scolding sparrows on the lawn,
Rabbits frisking home at dawn,
Pheasants midst the sheaves of grain,
All in harmony acclaim, October!

Brown earth freshly turned by plow,
Apples shine on bended bough,
Bins o'erflowed with oats and wheat,
And satisfaction reigns complete. October!

Radiant joy is everywhere.
Spirits in tune to the spicy air,
Thrill in the glory of each day.
Life's worth living when we say, October!"
